Drag drop from guest to host leads to full AppData drop

Reported by: wkoenig_ngbe Owned by:
Component: drag and drop Version: VirtualBox 6.0.14

Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows



As said in title I'm facing a verry strange file drag/drop from VM to host.

Wherever I drag from (in term of folder), if the file is named "006_remplissage_pieces_test_pause" and whatever is the extension Virtualbox try to drop all the AppData folder content to my host.

Exactly the same if the file is named "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" plus ANY extension. Even in "small path length" conditions. The same with 1 character removed. Works with 2 removed...

The same with 1, 2 or 3 characters added.

The "uge drop file name length" seems to be from 32 to 35 char, without "." and extension.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx   - 36 char / OK
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx    - 35 char / KO
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx     - 34 char / KO
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx      - 33 char / KO
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx       - 32 char / KO
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx        - 31 char / OK

Host is Windows 7x64, latest updates
Guest is Windows 7x64, latest updates
Virtual box is 6.0.14 r133895
Guest additions are up to date (6.0.14).

Can you please try with the latest test build for VirtualBox 6.1? You can get the latest test builds on the Testbuilds page.

Please note that also the Guest Additions of this test build need to be installed on the guest, followed by a guest reboot.

Let me know if this fixes the issue for you. Thank you!
